A rare location for a fantastic holiday

Posted 6 Jan, 2017

We were too bored with the typical hotels and resorts we used to visit & stay in. One of our family friends told us about a rare location & a Home stay called Oceano Pearl, a beach home stay. The friend, being a reliable one, we decided to give a try to spend 3/4 day's holiday at the said location. We got the contact no. & Straight away booked our stay for 3 days. The response was very gentle, quick and like eager to serve. We reached Ratnagiri and then headed towards Ganpati Gule, the village where, the home stay is located, about 22/24 Km. From Ratnagiri. We traveled there through a very narrow road, but full of greenery. At some stage in between, we were really worried about our decision to visit there. But, as we stopped in front of the building-a bungalow built in red Kokan stone-Chira, we were simply amazed and really felt that, This is The Place we were really looking for. The manager, very politely & eagerly welcomed us with a soft drink & took us to our rooms. Again, we were surprised on looking at the room. It looked like every care was taken to offer total comfort to the guests. The room was exclusively clean & healthy, equipped with AC, TV, FRIDGE, ABSOLUTELY CLEAN WASH ROOMS etc and the Wi-Fi was absolutely an added surprise. The next morning, we decided to go for a walk on the beach. We thought that it'd be at least 1/1. 5 Km away as there was no sign of the Sea till then. But when we went behind the bungalow, we just walked on the pavement through a garden (totally covered with various green trees like Mango, Coconut, Palm and many more, for about 4/5 minutes, the path lead us to a gorgeous, magnificent, astonishing view of the Sea, right in front of us. We had never experienced such a serene, calm and quiet beach. We were simply speechless and just sat on the beach watching the silent, endless sea waves. While returning for lunch, we saw a cute Tree House in the garden, facing the Sea (we immediately decided to book it for our next visit). For lunch we were asked our choice of food (Veg & Non-veg) and really we got our exact choice. The food was simply tongue tickling, healthy and we really had it to our satisfaction. Our kids in the family enjoyed all the games arranged in the garden, like Badminton, Carrom Board, Volley ball, Sand Pit, Swing and many more. The total staff of the hotel was very prompt, smiling and eager to serve. Three days just flew away so quickly & we had to leave. Of course. Holidayiq. Com/write-a-review. A firm decision to visit again and with more friends & their families too. (There are about 8-10 rooms)

Delicious food and a great stay

Posted 9 Oct, 2015

I was recommended to this Oceano Pearl A Beach Homestay by a close family friend and reading the reviews, I was interested in booking a room for just a day for a meeting. I booked the hotel online and when I visited the place, I was welcomed in and the verification and booking process went very smoothly. The staff members were very helpful and they recommended me many places that I could shop at and enjoy my stay. Since I was alone on my journey, I felt it was a pleasant welcome from the staff members and their room service was at a top notch. The food served was delicious but a bit expensive. The room I checked in was cleaned well and it had all the necessary amenities and services I required during my stay.

It is a small resort with quality rooms

Posted 1 Oct, 2013

The location is at its best. Right next to the beach, situated in a small village, we loved the atmosphere its very charming. It is a small resort with quality rooms and courteous staff, we ordered maharahstrian food and each of my family member was more than happy, specially we do not had to worry about our 6 months old kid. They can take care of every need, staff is always willing to make you comfortable. Those two days were amazing, never had such experience in any of the resorts in Konkan, my family was with me, we enjoyed and spent good time on the beach. They looked after our safety also we were surprised to have life jackets from them when we wanted to enjoy in the blue water. Will surely recommend this to other . Hope to visit this place again in coming x-mas holidays.

A destination to really relax

Posted 6 Jan, 2017

It is my quest to find out a home stay in every city, town wherever I visit. Recently I happened to visit Devrukh & to my surprise, I found a wonderful place adjacent to a small, clean river in the town. It's 'O Nest home stay', a cute place to stay for a weekend or vacation of 4-5 days in Konkan. It's a single storied premise to give a real Konkan experience with every comfort. One can enjoy the tasty & healthy food which provokes your appetite. You get a very Homely & friendly staff but a professional, hassle-free service, which is very important for me. As the owners stay in the same premise, you rarely have to complain about anything. Cleanliness & healthy surrounding is maintained throughout the premise. It's a nice & safe place for families, where care is taken for every age group in the family. A beautiful, cozy Tree House is an additional attraction for couples. There is ample Greenery & Pollution-free environment. Overall, if anybody wants to spend a calm, quiet & satisfying vacation, this place O Nest homestay is a fantastic choice, which can satisfy you 100%. When I visited earlier, the renovation was in progress which now is completed & many additional amenities are being provided.

Wonderful homestay with clean rooms

Posted 9 Apr, 2015

Oceano Pearl is a Homestay resort in Ganapatipule, Ratnagiri Dist, Maharashtra. It is ideal for a relaxing and rejuvenating holiday. It is bang on the beach which is frequented by a sprinkling of the locals with their cattle for the morning wash. Apart from that the beach is almost exclusively for the use of the hotel guests. With gentle lapping waves and clean sands it is perfect for swimming. The hotel rooms are clean, well fitted out and tastefully furnished. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We even got to see their vegetable farm and purchased a few farm fresh vegetables. Driving down from Mumbai via the Goa highway takes about 10 hours and the roads are good. Traffic is heavy in patches slowing you down a bit, but otherwise the drive is quite good. We chose to start late evening after office hours and stayed at Pen, before starting early next morning. Helped in arriving at the destination slightly more fresh and didn't have to waste the day sleeping off travel weariness. Beautiful location and would love to visit again in a larger group.
